Frozen beef

CLINTON, Mo. - A father and professional cake chef who jokes that he considers himself the farthest thing from a cowboy in his rural Missouri town saved three calves' lives on Wednesday, using an improvised lasso to haul them out of a frozen pond.

Mike Elder, who lives in rural Clinton and is something of a culinary celebrity across the metro, said he was driving near his home on Monday when he spotted something strange on an iced-over pond near his home.

"We thought it had like beavers or otters or something playing on it. Because there was these black things," Elder said. "So we stopped and actually backed up and that's when could see it was four cows that had fallen through the ice."
